Galatasaray playmaker Wesley Sneijder has played down reports claiming that he may reunite with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea this summer.

It is well known that the 30-year-old has a very close relationship with Mourinho, but has said there is little chance of working under the man again next season.

Sneijder told reporters: "I have a great relationship with Jose Mourinho.

"We have kept in contact since our days at Inter Milan. Does Chelsea need a playmaker? I'm not sure. In football you can never be certain of what will happen next but I'm very happy in Turkey."

With the likes of young talented playmakers such as Eden Hazard, Oscar and Juan Mata clinching regular spots in the starting line up, the former Inter Milan star sees no reason for Chelsea to be interested.

Not only are the club overloaded in that position, but the signing of Sneijder would also be rather to the contrary of Chelsea's recent transfer policy. In the last few years owner Roman Abramovich and sporting director Michael Emenalo have preferred luring young rising stars with bags of potential. 

The transfer as a whole looks unlikely to go through. With the recent arrival of Mourinho, the rumour mill is likely to be packed with reports linking Chelsea to players that have worked under the 'Special One' before.

Is this good news? Would you liked to have seen Sneijder in the blue shirt next season?
